Guangming.com (reporter Cong Fangyao) the Yellow River, a great 5000 year Chinese civilization, was born in this river. For thousands of years, this mother river has not only nurtured generations of Chinese people, but also created a splendid culture that makes the world side. It can be said that protecting this mother river is a grand plan for the Millennium related to the great rejuvenation and sustainable development of the Chinese nation

recently, the network themed activity of “China by the mother river” organized by the central network information office came to Lanzhou, Gansu Province to visit the efforts and achievements made by the city in the process of protecting the mother river

building embankments and revetments to make cities and rivers coexist peacefully

among the nine provinces and regions along the Yellow River, Lanzhou City, Gansu Province is the only provincial capital city in China where the Yellow River passes through the city. The Lanzhou section of the Yellow River has a total length of about 150.7 kilometers, including 47.5 kilometers of river in the urban section, accounting for nearly one third of the total length. Therefore, flood control is particularly important for Lanzhou city

“the Yellow River is peaceful and the world is flat”. Harnessing the Yellow River has been a major event for the people and the country since ancient times. In recent years, Lanzhou has increased the comprehensive treatment of the Yellow River and successively implemented a series of measures such as the special action of “hand in hand to clear the four chaos and protect the mother river”. On the 16th, the interview group came to the Lanzhou Railway pumping station project site for Yellow River Regulation to interview the flood control project of the main stream of the Yellow River, the comprehensive environmental treatment and landscape construction of Lanzhou Yellow River style line

Shi Lei, deputy head of the Yellow River channel management station, introduced in an interview with reporters that the flood control and control project of the main stream of the Yellow River was completed before November 30, 2020, with a length of 51 km, 11.79km of new embankment and 24.28km of new revetment. After the completion of the project, the flood control standard of Lanzhou has reached the level of once-in-a-century, and the corresponding peak flow has also reached 6500m3 / s, which has effectively protected the urban area of Lanzhou from the threat of flood disasters and greatly improved the overall protection capacity of Lanzhou

as one of the project sites, Lanzhou railway water intake pump station has become a special presence in Lanzhou section of the Yellow River through the construction of livelihood projects such as new viewing platform and opening up riverside promenade

Lanzhou Railway pump station was built at the end of last century, mainly providing water source for the former Lanzhou Railway Bureau. After the Lanzhou Railway Bureau used tap water in 2008, the pump station was abandoned. In the process of building a large scenic spot of the Yellow River style line, Lanzhou transformed the pump station into a viewing Pavilion, connecting the walking path and sidewalk, becoming a good place for citizens to relax

standing in the pavilion overlooking, the Yellow River flows like a jade belt from the foot, with trees on both sides of the river. Citizens take a walk and exercise on the footpath, forming a harmonious and beautiful scenery along the Bank of the Yellow River

restoring wetlands to give animals a paradise

protecting the mother river, renovating rivers and strengthening dams are on the one hand. Improving the ecological environment, protecting the ecosystem on both sides of the Yellow River and carrying forward the Yellow River culture are indispensable and important

Yongjing County, located in Linxia Hui Autonomous Prefecture, Gansu Province, is a bright pearl in the upper reaches of the Yellow River. The three tributaries of Tao River, Huangshui River and Daxia River converge here. Three large reservoirs, Liujiaxia, Yanguo and Bapanxia, stand in it. It is known as an important water supply area and ecological security barrier in the upper reaches of the Yellow River

Yongjing county is not only geographically superior, but also the ancient culture of the Yellow River is precipitated and gathered here. There are not only Bingling Temple Grottoes founded in the Western Qin period of the Sixteen Kingdoms, but also Bingling Danxia National Geopark and Liujiaxia Dinosaur National Geopark; Here you can see the Blue Yellow River and the strange landscape of “red mountain and white earth head, Yellow River flowing westward”. It can be said that, moistened by the Yellow River, Yongjing county has rich cultural and tourism resources. Therefore, how to strengthen the construction of ecological environment and develop cultural and tourism industry has become a major issue in front of the local government

according to the person in charge of the ecological environment bureau of Linxia Prefecture, in order to improve the ecological environment, in recent years, the region has successively formulated and implemented the work plan for the full implementation of the river head system in Linxia Prefecture, the work plan for the full implementation of the lake head system in Linxia Prefecture, and the key pollution prevention and control plan in Linxia Prefecture. Sewage treatment plants have been built in 8 counties and cities of the prefecture, and 795100 mu of artificial afforestation has been completed, The afforestation area of 527500 Mu has been completed, the forest coverage rate of the whole prefecture has reached 11.38%, and the function of ecological protection barrier has been further improved

at the same time, the local government has also strengthened the protection and management of the wetland resources of the Yellow River. According to Li Shizhong, head of the management station of the Three Gorges wetland Provincial Nature Reserve of the Yellow River, the management station implements key protection for important wetlands within its jurisdiction and arranges special management and protection personnel for daily patrol; Meanwhile, a 16km green belt has been built along the Yellow River and a fixed artificial food source for migratory birds has been established on Taiji island to control illegal hunting and improve the biodiversity of biological species in natural wetlands. Through efforts, there are more than 20000 migratory birds living here for the winter, and the species have increased from 26 to 47. Now it has become a “paradise” for migratory birds

in addition, Yongjing county makes full use of local cultural resources to develop the cultural and tourism industry. Yellow River culture, Bingling culture, intangible cultural heritage culture and national culture are blooming here. Dinosaur National Geopark and Yellow River culture museum began to attract visitors from all over the world. With the help of modern scientific and technological means and communication means, the story of the Yellow River going out from here has been spread all over the country and has become a moving chapter along the Jiuqu Yellow River

the Yellow River with nine twists and eighteen bends breaks through the valley and rushes eastward. Each section has its own scenery and story. Each section needs people’s care. This is not only to protect a river, but also to protect the human history and happy life nurtured by this river
